Ecosavr™ FAQs

What is Ecosavr™

Ecosavr™ is a patented fish shaped application method for Heatsavr™, the original liquid solar pool cover.

Basically, it is a transparent liquid that spreads across the surface water of your pool to reduce heat loss by lowering the rate of evaporation. Since pools lose up to 70% of their heat through evaporation, using Ecosavr™ can help you keep that heat in your pool - instead of evaporating into thin air!

How many Ecosavr™ do I need?

1 Ecosavr™ will cover a 400 square foot pool (a pool with approximately 15,000 gallons of water) for about a month.

If your pool is larger than that, you can use two Ecosavr™. However, if you have a very large pool, one that is more than 800 square feet, you may want to consider trying Heatsavr™ with another application method.

Should I use Ecosavr™ if my pool ISN'T heated?

You should absolutely use Ecosavr™, even if your pool isn't heated!

A heated swimming pool should see financial savings by using Ecosavr™, since they won't be using as much water to keep their pool temperature maintained, but there are other benefits to using Ecosavr™, as well.

Ecosavr™ has been proven to reduce overnight heat loss by about 50%, so if you are not heating your pool, you will be able to keep your water warmer, for a longer period of time.

As an added bonus, Ecosavr ™will also lower your water loss, so you won't have to refill your pool as often!

Can I use Ecosavr™ if I have a Salt water generator?

Yes, you can use Ecosavr™ if you have a Salt water generator. It is also safe for all your other pool chemicals and equipment, including filters.

Why did the blue liquid inside my Ecosavr™ turn clear?

Occasionally, a bit of pool water will get inside your Ecosavr™ fish when it is in your pool. The sanitizing agents you use to keep your water clean will cause the tiny amount of food-grade die used in our Heatsavr™ formula to turn clear. Don't worry, the active ingredient is still doing its job, covering your pool and keeping the heat in!

Do I need a higher "initial" dosage?

If you are putting in your very first Ecosavr™, you may want to squeeze a bit of the liquid directly into your pool before letting it sink to the bottom. This is not a necessary step, but it will make sure that the liquid pool cover starts to work within minutes!

You'll only need a few drops, and then you can let the Ecosavr™ sink to the bottom of your pool to keep the cover replenishing consistently throughout the rest of the month.

Should my Ecosavr™ float? Or sink?

Ecosavr™ should always sink to the bottom of your pool in order to work effectively. Watch the video above, for a short instructional showing you how to get your Ecosavr™ to sink properly!

Once it is in your pool, the water pressure and the fact that the Heatsavr™ liquid inside each fish is lighter than the water in your pool, will ensure that the liquid cover rises to surface. It will then spread itself out - just like putting a physical cover on your pool, only much easier!

What if my pool vacuum gets ahold of Ecosavr™?

If having a small fish at the bottom of your pool disturbs your pool vacuum, you can also put the Ecosavr™ in your skimmer basket. If it is a bit too big, just fold the tail in a bit. As long as the entire fish is submerged in water, it will work great!

Can Ecosavr™ be used on an above -ground pool OR an in-ground pool?

One of the greatest things about liquid pool covers is that they can form themselves to any size or shape of swimming pool.

Because of this unique quality, Ecosavr™ will be just as effective on an above-ground pool as it will be on an in-ground pool.

Just make sure you are using the right amount of product to cover the size of your pool, and you can't go wrong!
